Daniel Adler-Golden
They're my advisor  •  Founder, CEO, and Social Media, Wally's Jazz Club.
Having been part of multiple successful startup teams, I quickly recognize when an aspiring entrepreneur has "the right stuff" to succeed - ... passion for what they want to do, the resourcefulness to find a way to move forward and win, the drive to do the impossible, and the intelligence to navigate through it all towards a goal. Daniel has these traits in spades. I met Daniel through his Website Grouptones. I'm a musician also working on a music industry startup. I found Grouptones while searching for other musicians to form a jam session group. I Emailed Daniel to ask for a meeting to discuss how Grouptones and how he got it started. The bottom line is we hit it off at the first meeting. I immediately saw that Daniel has the same passion for music and building a musician community Web site that I do. I asked to join his advisory board, and I'm now engaged in helping Grouptones. Daniel has rapidly assembled a top notch advisory board and linkages to key partnerships that will positively impact Grouptones. Daniel will succeed - his 24X7 driver is to assist musicians in collaborating, having fun, making music and sharing music. The music industry will be the better with the success of Daniels efforts.

Maureen MacGregor
Communications & Integrated Marketing Specialist, Pelorus Communications. Previously PR, Madison Alexander PR.
Maureen is an awesome advisor because she has extensive successful experience with start up companies. Maureen worked with me at a startup, ... and thanks to her guidance, we had a text book noisy launch that garnered multiple awards, and more importantly, gave us a "shot out of a canon" revenue ramp up.
